The Camino Real Hotel is a wonderful hotel to choose if you are ever in Monterrey, Mexico. It is among the Leading Hotels of the World group. The modern building is both grand and welcoming, particularly because of the wonderful staff of the hotel. The staff is effusive in its hospitality. The rooms are well-appointed with the large, plush bed; a small modern sofa; flat screen TV; large bathroom with large closet, vanities, drawers, and separate toilet, and rain shower stalls. The hotel has a chic-looking bar/lounge, two restaurants (Italian & Pan-Asian), cafe, gym, and a pool. The hotel is also connected to large shopping complex with various clothing stores, restaurants, among others. There is even a popular Starbucks right beside the hotel.
I was somehow placed in the Club Real section that had a special lounge with daily refreshments and snacks, with a balcony offering great views of the surrounding mountains and city. I also received a special dessert treat delivered to my room on the first night. It was a pleasant surprise!
Hotel is pleasant and clean and the balcony over the inner courtyard design is very pleasant in each room. Not within easy walking distance of Tec, though. Pool is small. A downtown hotel is virtually as close if taking a taxi.
I ended up changing hotels and staying at the El Paso Autel which was ideally situated (3 blocks north of the Palacio de Gobernio on Zaragoza near R. Martinez) for exploring el Centro of the city by foot. For 470 pesos/night, with breakfast included (choice of huevos rancheros, huevos revueltos con papas, chilaquiles, among others...quite good! tortillas tasty and fresh) and a comfortable room with excellent room service, I was very very satisfied. From my last hotel where the street noise was too loud for my taste, this time I made sure to get an inerior room that would shield me from all the hubbub of poor-mufflered cars/trucks/buses on the street outside. The accommodations were not elegant but were well suited to me, who really just wants a comfortable bed to sleep in and a place to shower, but be well-situated for exploring a city by foot.
When preparing for this trip I made sure to check all types of web pages about the accomodations for this hotel. I was told that I was reserving a King size room with a iron/ironing board, coffee maker, and table (the most important ammenities). When we arrived at the hotel we were given a room (or closet?) with a full size bed, no table, no iron, no coffee pot....not to mention the beds were as hard as a slab of marble. There was one guy who worked the desk who was a real jerk, we came back from Barrio Antigo one night to use the phone and he refused to let my husband and I and our friends upt o our room because they weren't guests of the hotel. Anyway I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone especially since the room was $60.00 USD each night.
Elegant old world hotel. Located close to downtown. Several places to go within walking distance. Easy to find if you're not familiar with Monterrey.
I believe the hotel was built in 1912 and has considerable history. I found some old menus from the restaurant on Ebay the other day, think from the twenties. Wish I'd bought them.
Monterrey is a huge, beautiful city and has several "centros." And there are very nice hotels located around most of them. This area is for those interested in history and tradition.
The rooms were very nice, not huge, but very comfortable. We had the breakfast buffet both days. It was good, but there are better and I consider it a little pricey. About $13 USD. The bar is very nice although drinks were high. The live entertainment was great.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The exchange rate was reasonable, but you can get a little better deal at one of the "casas de cambio" right around the corner.
I went with a group of friends who had never been to Monterrey, and this hotel was perfect for that kind of trip. If you want to go to Monterrey on an occasional basis I would certainly recommend this hotel. If you are a frequent visitor to Monterrey, as I hope to continue to be, there are cheaper, but very nice hotels en Garza Garcia.
Lots of folks from other parts of Mexico stay here. Good cultural experience.
Lot of hotels over Monterrey, but almost all of them are kind of luxury, so is expensive to stay overe here. The hotels that are not too expensive are in areas near not safe places. Anyway i recommend not too expensive hotels like Days Inn or Los Reyes that are near dowtown. or you can stay at the Ibis, as is new they have good prices right now.
You can find good places to stay between $45 dlls thru $150 dlls (1,500 pesos) by nigh a double room
Monterrey is an expensive city if we talk about hotels, most of the american chains are more than 100 dollars per night, this is, Holiday Inn Express, Crowne plaza, Fiesta Inn, or Hampton Inn, if you come in budget plan, you can choose, Days Inn, Calinda, or Ibis Hotel.
45 - 150 USD
Most of the hotels i mentioned have Fitness center, restaurant, pool, and major ammenities.
This is where George Bush stayed during the UNO conferences in April this year. Too expensive for you? Sorry, I can´t help you out here, haven´t seen any budget accomodations while in Monterrey. But I´m sure that there are some cheap hotels too!
For the campground, it was $333 Pesos a night, or in 3/02 about $38 dollars US. The hotel charged around $1,600 pesos a night, which is what the place is really worth--but the RV campground is under-used so it's a great bargain.
It is ~wonderful~. The RV campground itself is nice, but the thing is that it's attached to an incredible resort--five pools (wave, indoor, outdoor, waterslide, etc.) with a great restaurant, tennis courts, ~everything~. You get to stay at an expensive, wonderful resort for RV campground prices... we'll be back for sure!
The Quinta Real is a truly excellent place to stay. Not only is the hotel beautiful, the rooms are large, and the bathrooms are something to behold! It is also right across the street from a great mall.
The average price is around $200-$250 a night. That's American dollars.
This is a FULL service hotel - with everything and then some.
The Radisson Ancira Plaza Hotel
US$150 per night
If you cannot afford this, at least wander through the lobby.
The Ancira is one of those Mexican hotels that exhibits an old world charm, harkening to the elegance of a time long forgotten. The hotel was built in 1910, in a kind of a pre-art deco style, and had fallen somewhat into disrepair, prior to being acquired by Radisson a couple of years ago. Since that time, the hotel has undergone a major renovation, starting with the lobby, and continuing to the meeting room floor. Of the residence floors, the renovation has been fully completed on all but a couple of the six floors, and the renovations are of a high-quality, with excellent materials and attention to detail.
